With all the snow and frozen landscape outside, I am craving for bright colors. So I’m happily sharing the resurgence of fluo, a spring 2012 trend spotted in an Australian magazine I recently bought in the US. Neon colors are fusing with pastels and neutrals injecting optimistic tones to chase the winter blues away!
Fluo works wonderfully with soft pastels and natural woods. And that glowing pink neon on the wall is the cherry on the cake!
Flamboyant fluos are balanced by airy compositions with plenty of breathing space. I find neon colors particularly vibrant against subdued and monochromatic color palettes, like this lacquered pink sofa table bursting in a dark grey living room. This fluo pink cowhide rug would fit well on the concrete flooring of a loft.Framed in a fluo ‘cage’, a family chandelier pops in a classic hausmannian living room. Fluo used as accent color wakes up a space and definitely makes a statement!
